About Me

*** I need umbrellas right now! Stickers or die-cuts or images cut from magazines or cards, etc. Any umbrellas, but specifically ones without any white or coloured borders around them!! Thanks! ***

I am a 34 year old woman living in Victoria BC. I came out to this coast to pursue a Masters in Geography (which I did complete!), and ended up teaching preschool. I realized my passion in life was connecting kids with the outdoors, and I now work as one of the teachers for our entirely-outdoor preschool, run at a local lake. As such, I love the outdoors and all that goes with it.

Favourite animals

  • Sea creatures - jellyfish, sea turtles, octopus and seastars (and really, all other sea creatures, too!)
  • Whales - especially killer whales
  • Owls or bird silhouettes or members of the jay family, esp. vintage birds
  • Foxes & squirrels

My ultimate favourite themes can be summed up as:

  • Ocean-related
  • Woodsy

Themes that I enjoy

  • Animals, arrows, autumn, acorns, anchors, ant eaters, avocado
  • Butterflies in flight, birds in flight, biodiversity, bananas
  • Cats, city skylines, conservation biology, carnations, cabooses, caterpillars, canoes, chocolate
  • "Did you know" facts, dinosaurs, dragonflies, doors/doorways
  • Earth-themed things (Earth-day, earth-friendly, images of the Earth), eagles
  • Forests, feather themes, forest critters, fall, ferns
  • Glittery things, globes
  • Hedgehogs, hammerheads
  • Insects, icicles, islands
  • Jellyfish, jellybeans, jigsaw puzzle themed items
  • Kites, kawaii cats and kawaii food with faces
  • Llamas, leaf-themes
  • Mountains, maps
  • Night-time scenes
  • Ocean-related anything! Olympic Games
  • Panda bears, peacocks/peacock feathers, porcupines
  • Quail, quotes!
  • Random facts and trivia, rabbits, raccoons, raspberries
  • Sailboats, snow, snowflakes, stars, silhouettes of birds (and other things), snapdragons
  • Tall trees, turtles
  • Unicorns, underwater
  • Vancouver 2010 Olympic Games, vines
  • Woodsy themes, winter, water, words - especially "wonder", "explore", "home", "journey", "experience", "joy", "curiosity", "adventure(r)", "find"
  • Xylem, xerophytes
  • Yoga
  • Zig-zags, zoology, zephyr (the wind)

Notes for swaps

  • Note for sticker swaps (I LOVE stickers):

I love stickers with positive/inspirational or adventure quotes or sayings on them, animal stickers or nature themes (or any of the themes listed above!!), and stickers or sticker tags & labels with places to write things directly on them. I also like alphabet stickers in full sheets. I use regular stickers as well as 3D, dimensional or puffy stickers, chipboard stickers, epoxy stickers.

NOTE: looking for umbrella themed stickers, I would LOVE these.

(That said, I am not picky and I will appreciate and love whatever you send! I just like including lots of options for you because I think it makes it easier :D)


Felt animals and/or shapes to use on feltboards at preschool

Journalling and/or Project Life cards... now obsessed with these

Washi tape! I have been going through all my samples so quickly since I incorporated washi into my journal

I am always looking for bird die-cuts!

Embellishments for scrapbooking, art journalling, etc.

Foreign coins

Fun shaped sticky notes (esp. animal shapes or woodsy themed)

Tea!! I love collecting teas from all over for a few special people as gifts

Beautiful envelopes (hand-made or otherwise)

Pokemon cards

Old transit/public transportation tokens/transfers/tickets

Hot chocolate!

Staedtler anything, or nice writing pens in various colours. Fine or extra fine Sharpies (non-black).

Notebooks, and guided journals, or guided journal prompts. I just love paper. Maybe too much!

Facts about me

1) My middle name and city of residence match

2) I once went on a winter camping trip and slept in a quinzee that I built (a snow hut)

3) I attended the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Games and it was one of the best periods of my life

4) I collect those little stickers that come on fruits and vegetables. I would LOVE to receive some from other countries!!!!

5) My favourite food is macaroni and cheese

Thank you to...

Ooh, I'm SO GLAD it's arrived. I was so worried about strike/lockout on top of my dawdling. Totally true story, only slightly exaggerated in order to exercise my punctuation skills. Thanks for letting me know what you liked.

Tag through the alphabet C -cat punchies

Thank you for the cat punchies and I really appreciate you gave me the background, not sure what to call it-the paper they were punched from as I will find uses for those, too! Cute cat card and paper! Thanks for those, too.
